Montana

Provided By: 

The Treasure State is the perfect nickname for Montana. With wide expanses of blue sky overhead, glorious mountain ranges stretching as far as the eye can see and some of the clearest water known to Man, Montana is unquestionably one of our unspoiled national treasures. It’s a known fact that some of the sapphires in the Royal Crown Jewels of England were mined from Montana soil. This state is also home to some of the few remaining grizzly bears, and provides fisherman with a prime fishing ground to catch plenty of tasty rainbow trout. Winters in Montana, while cold, blanket the area with pristine white snow that turns the landscape into a storybook-style wonderland, and make it a playground for the skier, snowboarder, or sledder.

Our origin point is Helena; “The City That Gold Built.” Founded during the 1864 Gold Rush, Helena quickly thrived and became home to more than 50 millionaires by 1888. Today, Helena stands as a proud symbol of the glory days of the Old West, and we can still visit several of the restored mansions built by several of those early millionaires.

For more information about the state’s development, the Montana Historical Society Museum is an excellent resource. Established in 1865, the Museum provides countless exhibits and a program geared towards the continued appreciation of her early settlers, and features a wealth of information about Lewis & Clark’s involvement with pre-state Montana.

Setting out on the road, we angle ourselves south on the I-15 and cruise for about 65 miles until we come to the city of Butte. Butte has always been one of the most productive mining towns in all of Montana, and as such, it’s also the home of the World Museum of Mining. Founded in 1963, the museum preserves Butte’s rich mining history, including the fact that the city is home of one of the most productive copper mines in history. The museum is built in an actual mining site – the Orphan Girl Mine - and includes more than fifty exhibit buildings, showcasing countless artifacts from the brisk mining operation, and there are nearly seventy primary exhibits in the mine yard alone. Another intriguing spot to visit while in Butte is the Copper King Mansion, the 34-room Victorian mansion that once served as the primary residence of William Andrews Clark, one of the so-called “Copper Kings” of Montana who helped establish the state’s territory during her early days. The mansion remains as close to its original condition as possible, and in addition to serving as a bed-and-breakfast inn, daily tours are available for those who want to step back in time and see things as they were in turn-of-the-19th century Montana.

Heading further on our road trip, we take the westbound I-90 for 13 miles until we merge with Highway 1, which we take another 8 miles into our next stop, the colorfully-named Anaconda. Thankfully, it’s not named because of a mass of giant reptiles who dwell there, but rather because of a massive copper mine named “The Anaconda”....
